One Question Interviews: Night Birds

Brian Gorsegner (Night Birds)

SPB: Would you license your music for film, sports, or ads if given the opportunity? Are there exceptions to the rule?

Gorsegner: I would, and we have. Of course there are many exceptions. MTV used our song "Prognosis: Negative" for the intro credits to a new show they were doing with Will Ferrell as a surfing monkey or some garbage. They did not have our permission to do so, although they thought they did. The whole intro sequence was animated and done around our song when we found out about it, and we pulled the plug on it because we thought it was a sucky deal. If people are going to picture a surfing monkey every time they hear one of our songs we better at least be getting paid well for it!
